One of the famous life quotes by motivational speaker late Jim Rohn is:

"Success is not to be pursued; it's to be attracted by the person you become."

What kind of person is likely to attract success? It's the confident person.

Self Confidence
is belief in yourself. It's your ability to trust your abilities. Gaining self confidence means improving your ability to trust yourself.

Get started here by reading through plenty of self confidence tips on this site; and listening to audios designed specifically to boost your confidence.

why is gaining confidence important?

Two reasons:


Self confidence dramatically increases your odds of success in your endeavors, whatever it is you set for yourself to do.

As is our confidence level, so is our capacity.

Think about this:

If you trust your abilities, you would naturally put them to the best use when working on your plans. And when you put your abilities to best use, it is only natural, again, that your odds of success are so much higher.


Your perception of yourself affects how others perceive you.

If you are a confident person who believes in yourself, it radiates in your words and actions. Others will pick up that self belief you exhibit in yourself, and start to believe in you more.

See how the circle completes? People like, respect and trust confident people.

what does being confident mean?

does it imply being perfect every time?

No. Being confident is not about lack of imperfections, but about fearless acknowledgment of your imperfections. Gaining self confidence is not about becoming flawless, but about accepting your flaws fearlessly.

does it mean knowing the outcome of situations with certainty?

Of course not. But, being confident means always being comfortable with the uncertainty that comes with NOT knowing the outcome of situations.

Confident people can really, truly tolerate uncertainty. How do they do that?

They know they can handle it, whatever the outcome of a situation be.

do confident people worry about what others say or think?

You are right. They don't.

As Roosevelt said, "Nobody can make you feel inferior without your consent."

Confident people don't let other people's words or perceived thoughts dictate how they feel. They trust themselves far more than letting other people's perceived reactions get in the way of what they intend to do.

so.. do confident people always succeed?

Unfortunately, no. But they do enjoy a significantly higher chance of success.

Why? Because their belief in themselves is unwavering when they face a momentary failure. They learn from it.. and move on. They may try and fail, but they don't fail to try.

Their motto?

"The only real failure in life is the failure to try."

How would you like to gain self confidence by teaching your unconscious mind the habits of confident people, and making those habits your own?
